Calton Hill

The start of Edinburgh's New Year Celebrations is celebrated by a Torchlight Procession from The Royal Mile via The Mound, Princes Street and Waterloo Place to the top of Calton Hill where there are floodlit monuments, fireworks and a bonfire.

Here, the torch bearers gather at the top of Calton Hill.  The weather was fairly mild, but there was a light shower just before the firework display.
